I did it. Yesterday I ordered a MacBook Pro. If you want the details read this and you'll hear the whole story and read all the details. Of course the geek in me is now itching to have it and to start playing, learning and getting it set up. Thankfully Chris Penn posted a few months back the software I need to have. If he uses it, I'm going to definitely check it out.
This is going to be a shift for sure. I'm addicted to my IBM touch pad and Macs don't have those. It'll be interesting to see the frustrations and excitement that I know will be coming.
